Getting ready to read the next one in this series. Dec 04, Drystal rated it it was amazing. Edge of your seat ending to an all to possible scenario. Took me quite a while to read and as such it became bitty. Not the fault of the story, just Xmas and things getting in the way. Apr 08, Cyndi rated it really liked it.

Mofina does a great job of making the science behind the plot understandable and exciting not necessarily in a good way. A thriller from start to finish, The Panic Zone had lots of action and many characters. At first, I had a hard time getting the characters straight, and I was concerned that the number of characters would work against the plot to make it more confusing and less enjoyab The plot to The Panic Zone is compelling and complex.
At first, I had a hard time getting the characters straight, and I was concerned that the number of characters would work against the plot to make it more confusing and less enjoyable. Thankfully, my initial concerns proved wrong. Once I got into the book and the action, it was quite easy to keep everyone separate. Character names and personalities not to mention circumstances were quite different and easily kept separate once everyone was introduced. When everyone came together toward the end, I was familiar enough with everyone that there was no confusion at all.
I knew exactly who was who and what was going on. As for the characters, they were all well-developed and believable.
We got enough of their background info in most cases to understand their motivations as well as their weaknesses. Even the protagonist was easy to see why she was doing what she was doing — even if it was insane. And, I must say, it was a HUGE relief not to have anyone fall in love with anyone else by the end of the novel. I appreciated not having any such distractions in The Panic Zone. More specifically about the characters, I really liked Jack. I would have liked more information about him. There was talk toward the beginning about his getting hired with WPA, and people dismissing his credentials.
I would have loved for that to be shared. I sure hope so. And if so, I hope we learn more about his background — a lot more! Robert Lancer was also very interesting, and I would have liked to have seen more of him. Emma was a great character. Now, given the description on the back of the book, I can share my thoughts without spoiling anything. Even before cracking open the book, we know that she believes that she saw someone rescue her son. I think this made her story, while interesting, the weakest in the book. Overall, this was a good, fast-paced thriller that reminded me of Jurassic Park in that there was a lot of science behind the central threat.
I liked how everything that was seemingly separate was woven together into a detailed scheme. This book kept me reading because I wanted see just how exactly these components were related. Aug 20, Jael rated it liked it. You notice a strange white car following you.
